Although I finished up a rhubarb pie earlier this week, another one sounds good. This time, make it strawberry! They're ripening quickly, and I have to beat the robins to them. My crust of choice is using shortening. I use coconut oil in frying, but have never tried it in a crust.

Daniel, your sourdough bread sound delish!

I wish I could make a pie. It always comes out a bit mushy. My sister makes a Cherry pie that is the pinnacle of perfection. I force her to make it during Thanksgiving.

Well, the rhubarb pie is cooling off. I made the crust with coconut oil. It was soft and sticky, and the crust actually rose in the oven! The peice that I took off the edge seemed a little tough, too. I think I will go back to canola, that always works for me.

Today's white sourdough - has added fresh rosemary, pine nuts, garlic, and dried tomatoes from last year's garden. It smells awesome rising - don't know how it will taste.

Today's whole wheat sourdough contains maple syrup, chopped dried figs from last summer, and chopped walnuts. That one always comes out good, but the recipe calls for 1/4 cup powdered milk that i forgot to add. Oh well. MIght be OK anyway.

Joan, fresh oregaono and thyme are great! They grow well here. I think mint wouyld grow well for you too.

Qiana, your information encourages me. I like the butch cut that Cary does for me, it is short, easy to comb, stays pretty much in its place, and it costs me nothing. A butch isn't for every woman; I like it on me. 

Randy, sad to learn of your unpleasant tasting soup and glad you threw it out. I have a hard time discarding things that don't taste good. 

Speaking of tasting good, I brought home some herb plants from the store because I wasn't here earlier to put in those seeds. I used the fresh oregano and thyme in a sauce for mashed potatoes and it was delicious. 

Sadly, my herb plants did not come through the winter here at my home. All the garlic survived and will be ready to harvest in late June.

Here on "Food" we usually comment on something good we ate. Not this time. I had some leftover beef broth for a soup base. I tossed in white beans, asparagus, frozen Brussels sprouts, and mushrooms. I ate about half of it before I said to myself, "This is awful. Why continue?"  It didn't bother me in the least to throw the rest out.  Win some, lose some.

That depends on the point of view - cow or bison.

Comment by Randall Smith on May 19, 2016 at 7:01am

Yes, coconut is the oil of choice for me-- cooking-wise, not skin care. I must admit to using shortening for pie crusts (I make my own, Daniel). I've never tried coconut oil (crusts). Too darn expensive. How did your pie turn out, Daniel?

Changing subjects: I'm trying to go more vegetarian, but I still have to clear my freezer of meat. So tonight, I'm using my George Foreman grill to cook a bison burger. At least bison meat isn't as bad as cow meat--or so they say.

Really, Qiana?! You mean it does come back to "normal"?

I met with a nutritionist immediately after being diagnosed with cancer; it was part of the protocol at Cancer Care Northwest where they offered all kinds of care besides chemicals, radiation, and surgery. The nutritionist recommended coconut oil for everything: eating, skincare, and hair care. My hair has been wire-like, resembles a Chore Girl Scouring Pad, since chemo. The family and I hope that eventually the hair will take on the look of hair after several cuttings. I am tempted to just keep my head shaved. The good news, I have my eyelashes and eyebrows back.

Coconut oil is good for cooking and it doesn't have a strong flavour that spoils your food. You can also use it for skin care and a small dollop will make a cat happy.
